La Creperie Cafe

alrighty, let’s start with the garlic fries – served with ketchup, ranch, and chipotle aioli! happy happy mMm…

we have been waiting for these crepes for so long! ever since our day at the terrible crepe restaurant in Pasadena, our sights have been set on this place.

he’s been here plenty of times, so naturally he ordered his usual, the Al Mare (jumbo shrimp, sun-dried and plum tomatoes, wild mushrooms, shallots and mozzarella cheese in a lobster basil cream sauce).

I selected The Stallion ( potatoes, scrambled eggs, mozzarella cheese, caramelized onions and basil – but minus the Italian sausage). I absolutely adored my choice in crepe. the cheese was perfection!

and this place filled up fast – it was a sunday morning at noon, and we got there just in time before the lines started forming out on the sidewalk. i could almost sense the urgency of clearing out customers, as our waiter continuously checked up on our table to see if we were done, but did so in a respectful and non-rushing manner, ha! good service, boy! i can understand why its so popular – this place has a bohemian ambiance inside, but also provides outdoor dining that is perfect for sunday brunch out in the gentle sun with the cool ocean breeze~ oh, and the crepes are to die for! crepes of all kinds…crepes, crepes, crepes, galore! definitely worth a visit =)

There was a woman at the coffee shop with red lipstick and an open magazine. Every time I glanced up to sip my sweet tea, I noticed that her eyes were never on the pages of the magazine but averted up, looking at the other people. I found this to be quite unsettling. What was she thinking about?
